Goo Goo Dolls Map Out Tour

Band to kick off outing May 23 in Houston.

Starting next month, the Goo Goo Dolls will take their gig out of the gutter.

Fresh off of their top five debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart, on which the band’s latest effort, Gutterflower, entered at #4 with over 100,000 copies sold, the Goo Goo Dolls will go on a 30-date tour in support of the LP. Information about opening acts is still forthcoming.

The album, fueled by the first single, “Here Is Gone,” finds Johnny Rzeznik and company ridding themselves of the power ballads they have come to be known for — see 1998′s Dizzy Up the Girl with the hit “Iris”— in favor of some hard-hitting rock (see “Goo Goo Dolls Grow Flowers From The Gutter On New Disc” ).
